Pete was my dear friend for 41 years;the fun,experiences and love we shared throughout those years was priceless.Through him,I met my best friend in the world,Harriett. They allowed me to become part of their extended family and it was a joy to watch their children grow into the fine young people they are today.

I grieved with them when they lost their beloved Debi and I grieve with them now at the loss of Pete;husband,father,friend.

Mike,Pete,and Peggy,you are extraordinary human beings. The love and support you've shown your Mom is wonderful to watch. It is comforting to all who love her to know you are by her side.

It is said that you are fortunate if throughout your lifetime you can count on one hand your true friends. With the passing of Pete,I have lost a finger.

Rest in peace,dear friend

Harriett and Family,
Just remembering all the great times we shared at Little League ballgames, camping and fishing. Seems like yesterday. Shirley and I have moved in with Tom and Sherri in San Tan Valley so they can help take care of Mom. Shirley has Parkinson's disease.
